Psalms — Psalm 135 – God is Good/All the Time!

Day 2805: Look down and it’s maybe a 6′ view; look up and it goes forever. Look up!

Scripture: Praise the Lord! Praise the name of the Lord; praise Him, O servants of the Lord, you who stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God! Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;

For I know that the Lord is great and that our Lord is above all gods. He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; Who makes lightnings for the rain, Who brings forth the wind from His treasuries.

Your name, O Lord, is everlasting, Your remembrance, O Lord, throughout all generations. For the Lord will judge His people and will have compassion on His servants.

The idols of the nations are but silver and gold, the work of man’s hands. Those who make them will be like them, yes, everyone who trusts in them. You who revere the Lord, bless the Lord. Praise the Lord!   Excerpts from Psalm 135

Thoughts/questions: The created gods of silver and gold are contrasted with the Creator God who has a closet full of wind! Not much of a comparison, yet we humans tend to pay more attention to the created than the Creator – this shouldn’t be so!

A popular phrase is ‘God is good; all the time!’ The all the time part gets a bit fuzzy when made aware of the life challenges individuals face as well as the catastrophic events throughout the world. But when my focus becomes eternal and I realize the very limited knowledge I have, only then by faith can I proclaim, ‘God is good; all the time!’

Suggested prayer: Creator God, I believe, help me with my unbelief . . .
